About the Artist:

Sharon E. Morgan is an artist residing on Florida's Treasure Coast. Born in 1946 in Michigan, she is a baby boomer who entered college in the turbulent 1960s - an atmosphere that continues to influence her artwork. In that time period she attended Broward College in Fort Lauderdale and Long Beach City College in Long Beach California majoring in Fine Art. She is primarily a painter but also creates collages in her handmade books.

She has worked as a full time artist in varied fields: designing and building theatre sets and props as well as decor for themed corporate parties (1979-1985); creating signage for large developments in south and central Florida (1985-1999) and since 2000, website design & maintenance. While operating these businesses, she continued to pursue her art and exhibit her paintings. She taught art classes in her studio as well as at the Vero Beach Museum of Art.

While living in Broward County, Sharon exhibited in juried group shows including the Hortt Competition at the Fort Lauderdale Museum of Art, and the All Florida Competition at the Boca Raton Museum of Art as well as several shows at the Broward Art Guild. After moving to Indian River County in 1998, she exhibited in a juried show at the A.E. Backus Museum in Fort Pierce then shifted her focus to gallery exhibits and solo or two-person shows.

A five year project to complete a series of mandalas describing events in each decade of the 20th Century resulted in her receiving the Millennium Cultural Recognition Award from the State of Florida in 2000 and having an exhibit at the Capitol Complex in Tallahassee and the Ormond Museum & Gardens in Ormond Beach.

A 16-month collaboration with a dozen artists resulted in a book arts exhibit, ”Take Cover, Art at Risk,” that was displayed in the Brevard Art Museum (now Foosaner) in Melbourne, FL, the A.E. Backus Gallery in Fort Pierce and the Daytona Art League. Since 2000, she has been an active member of the Cultural Council of Indian River County and received the Artist’s Leadership “Laurel Award” from the Cultural Council for her support and promotion of the arts and artists in May, 2011.Her paintings are in private collections throughout the United States.
